Martha Attridge Bufton is the Interdisciplinary Studies Librarian in Research Support Services at the Carleton University Library.

As an historian, she researches in the areas of labour and women’s history. In particular, she is interested in the intersections of class and gender in the mobilization of white-collar workers. Her short documentary film, Women at the bargaining table. White-collar unionization at Carleton University, tells the story of unionism at Carleton in the 1970s, with a focus on five women who took leadership roles in this movement.

Her research interests in library and information science include culturally responsive instruction, game-based learning, and digital humanities.

Martha is an affiliate of the Carleton Centre for Public History and the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling at Concordia University.
